Day 155 Bay of Islands

A travel blog entry by elliotgamble


We ended up starting the day with a massive lie in. I didn't feel too bad about this though as it was all making up for lost sleep in the airport. When we did get out of bed we walked down to the Bay of Islands to grab a kayak. There we met the weirdest boat man ever. He was skinny, blonde, wearing a red hat and was completely off his head. He gave us a really good deal but when we told him we had no cash he gave us ...

We saw the sugar loaf hill he climbed to survey his surroundings and all was carefully documented in his ...

Day 63 - Auckland to Paihia

A travel blog entry by scottiebigtrip


... The ride to Paihia was beautiful, the countryside looks very much like England . . and we saw alot of cows and sheep. There was one stop on the way at a coffee shop. When we arrived at the Bay of Islands it was beautiful going around the coast. As we went up another hill we saw Mark and Graham waving at the side of the road. Our first impressions of Paihia are that it's ...
